:  The attracting effect of a small dose of tetrodotoxin (TTX) on eight toxic snail species (Polinices didyma, Natica lineata, Natica vitellus, Zeuxis sufflatus, Niotha clathrata, Oliva miniacea, Oliva mustelina and Oliva hirasei) and two non-toxic species (Pomacea canaliculata and Satsuma bairdi) was investigated. Each toxic snail species was determined to contain TTX. The minimum lethal dose of TTX for most toxic snails was estimated to be >44.5 µg TTX/20 g body weight, but for non-toxic… Expand
